A breathtaking celebration of Guitar music – in a glorious concoction of sounds and style.

The evening will also contain some signature classic guitar pieces like the theme of the Adagio movement of the Concerto de Aranjuez and Asturias.
GUITAR WIZARDS is a concept, created by Corneille Hutten of the award-winning international, but proudly South African, Guitar Duo CH2. The idea is to fuse various Guitar styles from Flamenco to Finger-style Guitar playing – all played with great precision on acoustic Guitars. This series of concerts promises to be an eclectic lab of creativity; saluting the sounds of Acoustic Guitar virtuosity.
A brand new, exciting fusion of guitar sounds is about to take South Africa by storm – kicking off in the cities of Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town in March 2019 – with 18 year old MARCIN PATRZALEK and MARCIN PATRZALEK.
CH2 has been top of the musical ladder for the past eighteen years in South Africa. Winner of multiple SAMA and Ghoema Awards, they have produced 11 albums, including the best-selling and Grammy entry “PING” and their most recent offering Insomnia – The Chapel Master. With their flawless, effortless technique and pulsating rhythms, they showcase what can be done on only two guitars, classical guitars, and create a very exciting instrumental pop sound whilst mimicking drum sounds and bass guitar all at the same time. CH2 has truly developed their own style unique to the band and continues to blow people away with their virtuosity. The members of CH2 keep challenging themselves with new techniques every day and see themselves as pioneers of the classical guitar, pushing the instrument into genres it is not known for.
